PRC to conduct Nursing Licensure Exam in Riyadh


Press Release No. 119 – 2012 (16 July 2012)

The Professional Regulations Commission (PRC), an attached agency of the Department of Labor & Employment (DOLE), has approved the conduct of Special Professional Licensure Board Examination in Riyadh,   for Filipino nurses on October 25-­‐27,  2012This is in support of:

•   Bringing the PRC programs and services closer to the Filipino professionals abroad.

•   Supporting the professional development and employment competitiveness of our underboard nursing graduates working overseas.

Ambassador Ezzedin Tago explained that with the board exam for nurses, most of the Filipino   professionals   in   Saudi   Arabia   would   have   a   chance   to   upgrade   their qualifications without going back to the Philippines.  In the past, licensure examinations have been successfully conducted here for engineers, architects and accountants.

The  Filipino  applicants  can  submit  their  accomplished  application  forms  together  with the requirements to the lead person to be designated by your hospital who will then forward these documents for evaluation to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), Philippine Embassy.  The cut-­‐off date for the submission of the completed requirements is July 31, 2012.

Interested  applicants  are  advised  to  download  application  forms  for  the examination from the PRC Website, www.prc.gov.ph.
